CommentaryWesley's Notes on the Bible
2:16 The mountain - That is, to some of the mountains wherewith Jericho was encompassed, in which also there were many caves where they might lurk. Three days - Not three whole days, but one whole day, and part of two days.
Rahab the prostitute is another example. She was shown to be right with God by her actions when she hid those messengers and sent them safely away by a different road.
Then, since Rahab's house was built into the town wall, she let them down by a rope through the window.
